la vega is live at nasa aims in mountain view where people gathered. good afternoon, janine. >> reporter: good afternoon. they were showing a feed of this. now it's just a recording of what it looked like. in the last 40 minutes it came as close as it would to the dearth. just to give you an idea how big it is, we're told it is as big as the size of this entire building, half a football field. on the screen, the asteroid doesn't look that spectacular. it looks like a small dot of light. these are pictures of the astroid being scene from an observatory in australia. it's 150 feet that's been dubbed 2012 da-14. scientists say there's no chance it will hit the earth. space enthusiasts came to watch the asteroid flying by as well as nasa scientists commenting on the significance. we spoke to a nasa expert and a viewer about the asteroid. >> it's coming very close and that gives us a wonderful opportunity to study it up close. and so we can learn a lot more about these types of objects. in terms of its scientist significance, there's depreleft over -- debris left over. >> i think

. but on friday an asteroid is going to come really close to earth. but as carl azuz explains nasa says there's nothing to worry about. asteroid 2012 da14 is about half the size of a football field, and it's headed right for us, or right near us, but before you start worrying about this. >> it's a meteor shower. >> reporter: know that nasa says this: >> the close approach of this object 2012 da14 on february 15th in nothing to worry about. its orbit is very well known, we know exactly where it's going to go, and it cannot heat the earth. >> reporter: with concerns about the end of the world put to rest, lets check out some science on this bad boy. first of, the asteroid is cruising along its 17,455 miles per hour. that's fast. but not as fast as rockets have to go in order to escape earth gravity and get in the space. speaking of gravity, it's going to give the asteroid a little extra pull as it passes by. so, as this thing is closer to earth, it's actually going to get faster. just how close is da14 going to get when it passes by on february 15th? more than 17,000 miles away from the planet.
a little over half hour ago and nasa says it's the closest one of its kind to approach our planet. we did a little digging to get more information on it. it's known as 2012-d.a. 14. the asteroid is 150 feet and destined for earth's backyard. experts say this is not to be confused with russia's meteor. >> the european space agency has run the videotape backwards tracing the trajectory of this object and it doesn't seem to have a direct relationship between d.a.-14. >> reporter: before you start recalling 1998's film "armageddon," think again. it's not going to impact earth. >> we can say with great confidence there is no chance of it hitting the earth. >> reporter: as far as asteroids go, this is a little one. the one that wiped out dinosaurs was six miles across. nasa says the asteroid will miss us by 17,200 miles. to put that in perspective, that's closer than the television satellites beaming your signal right now. researchers hope this asteroid can help them learn how to avoid collisions with larger ones, which could destroy the earth. >> we'll
up to look for the remains of the meteorite. nasa can track objects if they are big enough but the agency did not know this was coming there is so much stuff out there scientists are working to change that by building and launching a satellite that would track what is called "near earth objects." >> nasa is emphasizing that there is no connection between the meteor over russia and a huge asteroid making a close trip across earth. nasa says it will be the best opportunity ever to monitor a near miss by something so large. it is half 9 size of a football field. oakland space and science there is has a telescope viewing party at 7:00 tonight and nasa is broadcasting it on the web site at abc7news.com under "see it on tv." >> there was chaos in san francisco resulting in a shooting and chase and multi-car pileup. we are joined from 5th and mission to plain how this unfolded. cornell? >> stolen car suspect behind bars this morning after causing a major accident after a police chase right here at 5th and mission streets. police cleared the scene but they say the driver of a stole

, nasa has been charged by congress with keeping a 24-hour-a-day seven-day-a-week watch on the skies, and they're doing this principally with three observatories in new mexico, california and puerto rico, that have discovered about 98% of all the asteroid we know that are out there. >> axelrod: if they identify a potential threat what can then be done by way of a defense system? well, that's a real possibility. you don't want to destroy these things. they're too dangerous and it's too impractical. what you can do is deflect them. nasa has already perfected the art of landing on asteroids orbiting asteroids and we even fired an impactor into the side of a comet to study the debris. you can do the same impact mod welan asteroid and speed it up or slow it down by as little as a few centimeters a second. that way had it arrives at earth's orbit we've already passed by or haven't arrived at the rendezvous yet. >> axelrod: just a fraction. >> just a fraction. >> axelrod: in south africa today the extended family of olympic runner oscar pistorius came to his defense claiming the state's own

to earth. this is video of nasa tracking the asteroid as it moves across the sky -- it is about the size of a football field. at its closest point, the asteroid, which is named 20-12 d-a-14, was just more than 17-thousand miles above the earth's surface. that's lower than some satellites. and while it's too far away to see with naked eye -- there is at least one spot you can go to check it out tonight. we'll show you where -- coming up at 5:30 will you could certainly see the sun out there for today is shining brightly. warm temperatures around the bay area. it is in the '70s in many locations. san francisco not a cloud in the sky. temperatures in san francisco at 70 degrees. low '70's in a lot of places.

is at the nasa ames center in mountain view this morning to talk to us more about the meteor and then also the timing of it all because a big space rock is headed toward earth. >> reporter: yes, that's exactly right, frank and michelle. to every you go more information about that meteor though, russian scientists say that meteor entered earth's atmosphere about 33,000 miles per hour and hit the ground. more than 700 people are recovering from the meteor's shockwaves that fall caused explosions that broke glass over a wide area and it caught most people off guard. >> terrified. i just hit the snooze bar on my iphone for another nine minutes of sleep and all of a sudden, i fell back asleep and i hear this loud bang! >> reporter: now, this comes on the same day an asteroid known as 2012da14 is headed towards earth. it will make the closest fly-by of an object its size. the meteor and the asteroid are not related. it's coincidence that they are both happening in the same time frame. researchers say this asteroid is not expected to make an impact on earth.
are in a higher orbit than that, but unlike the russian meteor, nasa did see this space rock coming. >> nasa's currently studying about 9,000 of these near-earth asteroids. about 1,800 of them are fairly large and those are of very particular interest to us. >> now, overnight a bright flash was spotted streaking above the bay area sky. you might have seen it. and as the sky lit up, so did the phones in our newsroom. e-mails and tweets came pouring into kpix5. check that out. people concerned about a streak of light in the sky, and this youtube user posted this video of what may be a bright blue flash over the peninsula. we haven't been able to confirm the accuracy of that video, but, again, it was posted on youtube overnight from santa clarita to fairfield, facebook and twitter users reported seeing some type of flash just before 8:00 p.m. and nasa tells us there's no connection between the three of them, it was simply a cosmic coincidence. now, brian, you study these sorts of things. what's going on? it was kind of weird in 24 hours we saw all this. >> i
